In Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1, players will come across various new items, weapons, locations, vehicles, and more. The Shockwave Hammer is a new melee weapon that not only deals damage to opponents, but also launches them in air. Naturally, players need to know how to get ahold of this weapon. Here's where to find the Shockwave Hammer in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1.
Shockwave Hammer locations in Fortnite
The Shockwave Hammer can be found via ground loot, regular chests, Capture Points, and Oathbound chests. We recommend visiting major POIs and landmarks which are full of Oathbound chests to find the Shockwave Hammer. Alternatively, if you are looking for a passive drop, then its best to land near the isolated castle east of The Citadel POI. Check the yellow circle on the map image above to see the exact location for this spot. Here, you will find a couple of Oathbound chests which may have a Shockwave Hammer.
How to use the Shockwave Hammer in Fortnite
The Shockwave Hammer is one of the most unique melee weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1. It allows players to damage and launch opponents into the air. It can also be used as a neat rotational tool to reposition yourself and teammates to a safe spot. To slam and deal damage with the Shockwave Hammer, simply aim at the player and click the primary fire button. Players need to be close to the enemies to deal damage and send them flying.
Similarly, to bounce and launch yourself in the air, hold down on alternate fire button. You can also tap the alternate fire button to bounce one time with the Shockwave Hammer. This new melee weapon is incredibly powerful, and one of the best rotational tools in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1. The Shockwave Hammer has four charges, and you must wait for two charges to regenerate before performing an action. Charge regeneration takes about 15 seconds, so its best to keep another weapon ready.
